The HIRE Program provides education to teaching staff and support networks on employment by discussing Employment First and how to support students in preparing for work in school, at home and in the community.

Our education program includes:

  • Career exploration and opportunities to asses abilities and aptitudes to determine employment goals
  • Work-readiness topics including Employer Expectations, Communication, Conflict Resolution and Interview Skills

Summer Employment Program

  • Students are supported to secure a paid job for the summer months
  • Students are paired with a job coach who provides on-the-job supports to enhance training and develop work-readiness skills

Co-operative Education Placements

  • Support with securing a co-operative education placement in a student’s final year of school that will transition to paid employment after the student graduates

Interested candidates must provide confirmation of eligibility by Developmental Services Ontario and must be a resident of Mississauga.
